High schools - McMillan leaves the Hurricanes Glades Central's big win will last 1 .1 Can't blame Jim Reynolds, the baseball coach at Glades Central, if he was feeling a little giddy when he woke up Tuesday. Nor can you blame him for pinching himself to make sure it wasn't just a dream. There it was though, in black and white in the morning paper: Glades Central upsets state-ranked Wellington. Blanked 'em, 2-0. "We felt, myself included, like we had won the World Series," Reynolds said. It's the first time Glades Central has beaten Wellington in baseball, and it was arguably the biggest victory in the history of the Raiders' baseball program. "It was the biggest win as far as I'm concerned," Reynolds said. Reynolds had a feeling this year's team might surprise some people. Glades Central more known for its championship-caliber track and field program when it comes to spring sports was 6-18 last season in baseball, but 10 of the losses were by two runs or less. Almost the entire lineup including major league prospect Diego Santos, who has stolen 30 bases in 33 attempts returned Steve Dorsey High Schools this season. Already the Raiders have won more games than they did last season and were 6-5 the first time over .500 in many years until they went into a little slump. The win against Wellington junior Roger Mottley tossed a two-hit shutout and an 11-0 victory against rival Pahokee on Tuesday improved the Raiders to 8-9. The Raiders also have defeated traditional power Pope John Paul twice this season, and with pre-season district favorite Forest Hill struggling some, Glades Central has to be considered a playoff contender. One thing is for sure, Monday's win opened some eyes.

Leonard on Saturday night. Diaz is the son of former major leaguer Bo Diaz and Rader might have the strongest arm of all. Injuries have taken their toll on the Wolverines the first half of the season, although Gabbard's is the only season-ending injury. Second baseman Scott Grossi, who will play at Duke next year, has missed the past three weeks with a pulled abdominal muscle. Right-fielder Trevor Piestor , sustained a broken nose and hairline fracture of his cheekbone when he was hit by a pitch in a 12-inning loss to Vero Beach early this month. Benedict said Grossi and Piestor are expected back soon, however.

Wellington catcher out for season: Wellington senior catcher Kyle Gabbard is out for the remainder of the season with a chipped bone on his patella (kneecap). Wellington coach Scott Benedict said Gabbard, the Wolverines' leader in home runs (3) and RBI (14), injured the knee while in a rundown against district rival Palm Beach Lakes last Friday. Benedict said Gabbard, who is expected to have surgery within a week, will be sorely missed in the Wolverines' lineup. "He's the best catcher I've had in my 10 years here," Benedict said. "He handled the pitchers well, he has strong arm, not to mention he was hitting .353 and was our home run and RBI leader." Benedict said three sophomores Robbie Orton, Bo Diaz Jr. and Justin Rader will share the catching duties the remainder of the season. Orton i annis WATERSStaff Photoeraoher chobee.

By Jorge Milian Palm Beach Post Staff Writer CORAL GABLES Dyrai McMillan, who led the University of Miami in rushing two seasons ago, has left the team. McMillan said Wednesday he, quit because of his unhappiness at being switched from tailback to fullback this spring. : . College football UM coach Butch Davis indicated Wednesday he hoped to change McMillan's mind, but the player says there is no chance of that happening. "I'm not coming back for next year. I know that,' said the junior. McMillan started UM's first three games at tailback in 1997, but missed the rest of the year after injuring his shoulder and received a redshirt. - McMillan's injury allowed for the emergence of 1,000-yard rusher Edgerrin James and back-up James Jackson. r. With James and Jackson returning next season, Davis decided to move McMillan to fullback where he was to compete with Nick Williams and Wilbur Valdez for the starting position. McMillan said he was told that the fullback, rarely used as a ball carrier in Davis' offensive system, would see more work. "I didn't run the ball once during the (four) days I was out at practice," McMillan said. McMillan also said he was under the impression that the switch to fullback was "temporary" but found out recently that it wasn't. Davis said he met with McMillan on Monday and tried to talk the player out of quitting. "We had a long conversation," Davis said. "I told him that, clearly, it's in his best interest (to stay at UM)." i McMillan said he hasn't given much thought to playing football at another school and added he might give up the sport altogether. McMillan led the team in rushing during the 1996 season by gaining 565 yards. i' Noteworthy: Michael Lawson has been moved from defensive tackle to defensive end. Lawson, an Atlantic High School who started five games last season, made the switch this week after starting defensive end Derrick Ham was lost for the rest of spring practice with a torn pectoral' muscle Defensive tackle Nick Nettles, a freshman from Wei- lington, underwent surgery after separating his shoulder Saturday during practice. Nettles will miss: the rest of spring drills, but is' expected to be ready for fall prac-.t tice Former UM football players Jim Burt (1978-80), Bennie Blades (1985-87) and Vinny Tes-taverde (1982-86) were three of seven athletes inducted Wednesday into the UM Sports Hall of Fame. FLORIDA STATE FSU's Outzen out: Florida State's Marcus Outzen will miss the rest of spring practice after he separated his right shoulder in a' scrimmage Wednesday when he, was sacked by Jamal Reynolds on the last play. Outzen, who was battling for the quarterback posi-tion, will have X-rays today. NATION Auburn players questioned: Police questioned several Auburn ' football players about a residential burglary in which cash and property worth nearly $55,000 allegedly was stolen, athletic director David Housel confirmed. Housel said no charges had been filed in the March 14 break-in, so no action had been taken against the players.
